SOURCE: we purchased the coby kyros

At the very bottom of the device beside the USB port if you look inside when it is plugged in, you will see a little red light come on. I charged mine overnight for approx 6-8 hours and when I looked, the light was off and the device was charged.

SOURCE: Brand new archos arnova 10 tablet. It is stuck on

To hard reset a tablet, hold the power button down until it shuts off then press it to turn back on. Should take about 5 - 10 seconds for the device to power off.

SOURCE: kaser Android tablet will not turn on or charge its brand new

Did you drain the battery completely and try to recharge it? A lot of people have problems if they drain the battery and recharge. I went through 3 A300 tablets before I figured out I had to recharge the tablet BEFORE it went dead or it would never start again. I don't know why but many brands have this problem. Also, do not shut it completely off when it is on the charger. Always take it off charge, or turn off before charging. I had another prestige that had to be replaced because I turned it off or on while charging. I have not found out why this happens to many tablets! Good luck!

How do i reset tablet if tablet is not turning on


Since you didn't mention the brand name, etc, I'm going to give you some basic instructions that hopefully will reset your tablet to at least get it turned on so that you can do a more in-depth troubleshoot.

You're going to have to drain the battery battery first of all, and even though you cannot turn the device on, just leave it be with the battery inserted for 24 to 48 hours. After that, you'll need to plug the tablet into a charger and allow it to charge for a full, normal cycle (4 to 8 hours, depending on your tablet.) After that, try turning the tablet on again.

If that doesn't work, remove the battery from your device for about 10 minutes and while the battery is removed, hold the power button down for 10 seconds. Replace the battery and try to turn the device on.

If the steps above don't work, then the best idea is to take it to a qualified repairperson for diagnosing the issue.

Good luck!

Why won't my table charge?


Will the charger fit any other device that you have? If so try to charge some other device. It appears that there are only two possible problems. 1 The charger is bad.- 2 The tablet is bad.
Read your manual regarding charging and how long the first charge should take.

My Samsung Galaxy 3 Tablet wont charge


Have you tried a different charging cable?

Did you allow the battery to run down until it was completely drained?
- If so then try the following;

Watch this video (link below). You should only remove the back cover, disconnect and reconnect battery cable. Disregard the rest of the video as I could not find one doing ONLY what you would need to do. Follow the instructions to remove the back of the tablet then disconnect the battery cable(careful not to damage the circuit board), reconnect the battery cable, and replace the back cover. Connect the charger, within a minute the screen on the tablet will pulse/flicker which is good news, allow it to charge a while, turn on the device, turn off the wireless wifi, click the power button to turn the screen dark again, and allow to charge for another 6 hours or till fully charged (when not connected to wifi the background processes will affect the charge time, on a weak charger it may not even charge like from an usb port on a computer).

Again, you should only be concerned with the video up to about the 1 minute and 15 second mark. You only need to disconnect the cable then reattach it. ONLY DO SO if you are comfortable doing so. If you have never worked on electronics before or are uncomfortable find someone to do it for you.

1. Turnn completly off the tablet.
2. With the tablet turned off, holding the return button while turning on the tablet-pressing power button. Keep holding the return button until you see the Hard Factory reset screen.
3. Confirm the hard reset procedure. Once done, simply wait until process has finished-the tablet will restart. This process can take up to 30 minutes, so it's very important that the battery of the tablet is completly charged before attempting the hard reset. If you can connect it to the charger while resetting, even better.

Zeepad still freezing i want to keep it, i just followed instructs in box, charged it, held power down for three minutes, and now recharging for two hrs. any tips, i don't like returning things i purc


Upon first use, you have to charge the battery overnight. Then for every recharge, you may have to keep it connected to the charger for at least 4 to 6 hours depending on your tablet, otherwise, your battery will go kaputt in a short period of time.

Cant get my samsung tablet to turn on


Your tablet's battery is probably dead. This may be because you have a bad battery, a bad charger, or a bad charging cable. Try using a different cable first and let it charge for a few hours - even if it doesn't look like it is charging.

If the new cable doesn't do it, try using a different charger. Samsung devices are picky about what charger you use, so try to use one made for your tablet. If you don't have another charger, plug it into a PC's USB port with the PC turned on. Leave them on and plugged in over night. That should trickle charge your tablet.

If neither of those work, try holding down the power and the Volume Up buttons. Keep them both pressed until the Samsung logo/boot screen comes up - should only be a couple seconds. Once the logo comes up release the power button but keep holding the Volume Up button. That will boot you into Recovery Mode. If that comes up, it means you've got power and your tablet isn't broken, but there is something wrong with the Android OS that is keeping your tablet from powering up normally. Use the Volume Up and Down buttons to move the selection highlight to the Factory Reset option. This will wipe all the info off your tablet and put it back into a "brand new just out of the box" state. You'll lose your information on the tablet, but this should fix the boot problem. Press the power button to chose the Factory Reset option. It will take a few minutes. Once it says that it is done, select the Reboot or Restart option. It should reboot. This boot will take longer than normal, since its wiping things out. But not more than a few minutes.

Does the charger fit in all the way? How do you know its charging?


I had the same question so after charging it for 6 hours and not knowing if it charged at all (since it keeps telling me to turn off the wireless due to low battery level) I plugged it in with it being turned on to see if the battery symbol changed once plugged in. It did change to a charging image but now I have to have the wireless off if I'm to use it for more than 30 minutes. So far I'm not impressed! I've been holding for their support for 20 minutes now and all I get are infomercials! Hopefully there's something I'm doing that is draining the battery and not that the battery is bad.
